10 Gifts of Health for the Holidays

10 Gifts of Health for the Holidays

1.  Chiropractic Care Gift Certificate at Bergen Family Chiropractic:

  • Buy a gift certificate for a new patient exam ($124)
  • (bonus) Receive a free tube or roll-on of BioFreeze to liven up the gift or to keep for yourself
  • Options:  3-pack of chiropractic adjustments ($126) or 12-pack wellness pass ($420)  *free BioFreeze with purchase of either option!

2.  Lumbar Cushion:  Many of your family members sit at computers all day long, or are retired and sit in a recliner everyday.  A lumbar cushion will support their lower back curve, make them more comfortable, and freshen up their seat.

3.  Tri-Core Cervical Pillow, BioFreeze, Gel Cold Pack:  Give the gift of a comfortable night’s sleep or other healthy items at Bergen Family Chiropractic such as a tube of BioFreeze and a cold/hot gel pack (everyone loves these and they make great stocking stuffers).

4.  “Activity” gift:  give a loved one a gift certificate (make your own if needed) for something active such as ice skating (plus skate rental) at a local rink, a yoga class, three months at a gym (Mike’s Gym in Bergen!), downhill or xc skiing (plus rental), or the water park and swimming at the Clarion hotel in Batavia.  Other ideas:  rollerskating, snowtubing, run/walk race entry…. be creative!

5.  Weights, exercise/yoga mat, & exercise video

6.  Hula Hoop – one of the good, weighted ones (but without the ridges because they can hurt!)

7.  Workout Clothes – high tech, wicking fabrics and the right weight for a sport the gift recipient loves

8.  Wool socks, gloves/mittens, and long underwear – your loved one will have no excuses when it comes time to go outside to build a snowman!

9. Pedometer – Get a FitBit or smart watch (and perhaps set it up and/or show the person how to use it).  Want to help someone with no outlay of cash?  Help an older family member to download a free pedometer app on their smart phone and remind them to put the phone in their pocket!

10.  Homemade Granola – Skip the cookie trays and go for a bag filled with homemade granola tied with a bow – makes a yummy and healthy addition to your gift recipient’s breakfast bowl!  (great for the office staff, distant relatives, bus drivers, mail carriers, and as stocking stuffers)  Get the recipe here.
